ASSOCIATION FOR LEGAL AND SOCIAL PHILOSOPHY (ALSP)
2006 Annual Conference, “Social Justice in Practice”
Thu 29 June – Sat 1 July 2006
University College Dublin, Ireland
The 2006 conference of the Association for Social and Legal Philosophy (ALSP) will be organised around the theme of “Social Justice in Practice”. ALSP 2006 invites panels and papers across the disciplines of philosophy, politics, law and social policy that explicitly discuss the complex relation between philosophical and practical analysis in relation to concerns of domestic and international social justice. We also welcome papers that discuss practical solutions to questions of social justice in contemporary society. The conference is open to many different theoretical approaches and we invite contributions to all aspects of the social justice debate, but preference will be given to contributions that explicitly address the connections between philosophy and practice.
Confirmed plenary speakers include John Baker (University College Dublin), Paula Casal (University of Reading), Avner de-Shalit (Hebrew University of Jerusalem), Russell Hardin (New York University), Richard Hull (National University of Ireland, Galway), Ingrid Robeyns (University of Amsterdam), Doris Schroeder (University of Central Lancashire), Philippe Van Parijs (Catholic University of Louvain & Harvard University), and Jonathan Wolff (University College London).
Submission of Paper/Panel Proposals: Please send title & abstract of about 300 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 February 2006. We also encourage submission of panels with up to three papers discussing a related topic: panel conveners should send a short outline of the panel theme, a list of participants and titles & short abstracts of the papers to email@example.com by 1 February 2006.
